SVP & Coaching Practice Leader, USA Lee Hecht Harrison
Dr. Lawley is SVP and Coaching Practice Leader for the US operation of Lee Hecht Harrison. In that role, she is involved in all Executive Coaching projects across the United States and oversees more than 300 executive coaches and a network for LHH Master Coaches in key cities across the country. Dr. Lawley also insures the quality of all coaching activities and works with clients who wish to tailor specialized coaching programs for their organizations. She also heads LHH’s Coach Certification Program.
Prior to her 15+-year career in leadership and executive coaching, she spent 10 years on Wall Street as a Vice President/Chief of Staff with Bankers Trust’s Investment Banking Department and then Goldman Sachs’ Mortgage Backed Securities Group. When she exited Wall Street to start her own consulting firm, the NY Times covered the event on the front page of the Sunday Business section with an article titled “Weighing the Fast Track Against Family Values.” Ten years later, she and her husband sold The Camelot Group to a publically traded firm.
Dr. Lawley was a member of the highly successful MEECO Designation (Measuring Excellence in the Use of Executive Coaching in Organizations) panel of experts for the MEECO Council:
Frank Wagner, Ph.D., MCEC, Founding Member, The Marshall Goldsmith Group
Dr. David Dye, Director, Human Capital Deloitte Consulting LLP
Ms. Barbara Singer Cheng, MBA, MCEC, President, Executive Core
Mr. Lee Webster, Esq., MBA, SPHR, GPHR, General Management; Human Resources: Director, Talent Acquisition and Recruiting University of Texas Medical Branch; ISO US Tag Team/HR
Mr. Michael Crystal, MBA, President, Myriad Development Inc.
The outcome was that the Mayo Clinic was granted a MEECO Designation at the gold level and the Ford Motor Company was granted the MEECO Designation at the Bronze level.
Dr. Lawley’s dissertation was in the area of Careers and Creativity and she interviewed twelve individuals who had multiple careers simultaneously. She is currently interviewing them again 15 years later to determine if they have stayed on the Career Blender path. William Bridges was the external advisor to her dissertation committee.
Sue has written several articles based on her dissertation and is a published poet. Her volume of poetry, Hieroglyphics of the Heart, won Honorable Mention in the Writer’s Digest Self-Published Poetry Contest.
Finally Sue founded two non-profit organizations. The first, Lasting Connections, paid the communicating expenses of families with a seriously ill member. This organization was active from 1992 through 2004.
Her latest non-profit endeavor, Sisters in Script, supports women writers and men who write about women’s issues in self-publishing their debut manuscript. Sue also hosts creative writing workshops and networking events for women writers within the greater NYC area.
